My Usual Table is a love letter to the great restaurants that have changed the way we eat—from Trader Vic’s to Chez Panisse and Spago to elBulli—and a vivid memoir of a life lived in food, from a founding editor of Saveur and James Beard Award-winning writer Colman Andrews. 
For reviewer, writer, and editor Colman Andrews, restaurants have been his playground, his theater, his university, his church, his refuge. The establishments he has loved have not only influenced culinary trends at home and abroad, but represent the changing history and culture of food in America and Western Europe. From his usual table, he has watched the growth of Nouvelle Cuisine and fusion cuisine; the organic and locavore movements; nose-to-tail eating; and so-called “molecular gastronomy.” 
In My Usual Table, Andrews interweaves his own story—from growing up in the sunset years of Hollywood’s golden age to traveling the world in pursuit of great food—with tales of the restaurants, chefs, and restaurateurs who are emblematic of the revolutions great and small that have forever changed the way we eat, cook, and think about food.

    ‘You’ve got cancer’ are not the words you expect to hear when you’re a 40-something marathon running fitness freak who has never even smoked a cigarette. Karen Hockney’s extraordinary battle with breast cancer was different in two ways. First, as an Englishwoman living in the south of France, a stone’s throw from Cannes, she suddenly had to contend with language barriers and an unfamiliar health system (albeit an extraordinarily efficient one). Secondly, as a leading showbusiness writer who has penned for publications including Hello, The Times and You Magazine, her job was jet-setting around the world to meet some of the most famous celebrities of our time. How could she cope with facing them sans wig, battling nausea and exhaustion? How would they react – and was it really possible to go from Cancer to Cannes Film Festival in the space of a few weeks?
    A memoir with a difference, Breathing Out is full of practical advice, meticulous research and knowledge garnered from Karen’s journey, punctuated by hope, positivity and a smattering of life-affirming humour.
